DECATUR — Police arrested a Decatur man they say was caught with cocaine and a stolen handgun. 

A sworn affidavit said Decatur police on Thursday executed a search warrant at the 33-year-old man's residence at the 2100 block of East Main Street. Officers found .03 ounces of crack cocaine, a digital scale and a loaded Ruger 9 mm semi-automatic handgun, police said. 

The handgun was previously reported stolen by the Macon County Sheriff's Office, according to the affidavit. Officers found about $1,000 in the man's pockets, according to the court document. 

The man is being held at the Macon County Jail in lieu of posting $75,000 bond. He faces preliminary charges of unlawful possession of firearm, possession of a stolen firearm and possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. Preliminary charges are subject to review by that state's attorney's office.
